Many women are unhappy with the shape and size of their breasts. Breast augmentation continues to be the most popular cosmetic surgery procedure as more women are looking into permanent options to enhance and gain confidence in their figure.
The first step to learn more about breast augmentation is finding a qualified surgeon who you feel comfortable with. Since the procedure itself is very personal and women often feel embarrassed showing someone else their body, it is important that you find a doctor who treats you with respect and listens to you about the result that you are seeking. While the surgical expertise and experience of a surgeon is of the utmost importance, an excellent bedside manner is often just as influential to patients when selecting a plastic surgeon.
Dr. William Koenig has extensive experience and expertise specializing exclusively in breast and body procedures. He is double board certified by the American Board of Surgery and the American Board of Plastic Surgery, and has performed over 1,600 breast augmentations over the past 12 years in Rochester, NY. Recently, he conducted a study on breast augmentation titled “Primary Breast Augmentation: A Single Surgeon Experience with Nearly 1,000 Cases,” which was presented at the Northeastern Society of Plastic Surgeons in Boston. His presentation highlighted his low complication rates as compared to national averages, due in part to his use of the Keller funnel to place implants. Capsular contracture, complication, and infection rates were measured at less than 1% for his patients.
Dr. Koenig has been frequently recognized by his patients as compassionate and consistent in providing excellent patient care. This is evidenced by his Compassionate Doctor Awards in 2012, 2013, and 2014 and the Vitals Patients’ Choice Award in 2014. He is respectful of his patients’ time which earned him the 2014 Vitals On-Time Doctor Award.
Breast augmentation is his most requested procedure, and Dr. Koenig is the leading provider of Allergan breast implants in upstate New York. He offers three implant options: saline, silicone, and form stable (gummy bear). Sizes and shapes are determined personally for each patient by taking into account their body shape, size, and the outcome they are looking to achieve.
